for barack obama right now. one is as michelle was just saying look at his popularity right now. part of that is a product of how the republicans have treated bill and hillary clinton for the past few years. where they treated them for villains for 15 years. and started in 2008 saying he was the good democrat and now barack obama is the bad one. and bill says the policies he wants to implement on tax rates for rich, that's what clinton enacted in 1993. he can say i did that. every single republican in the house, every republican in the senate in 1993 said exactly what every single republican today is saying. and look what happened in the 1990s. look how the deficits came down. didn't harm the economy to have those higher tax rates. that's all barack obama wants to go back to now. and the other reason is simply there's a contrast here between what happened under bill clinton and under george w. bush. it's hard for barack obama to be explicit about saying that. when he invokes bush, it's easy for the republicans to say he's blaming the predecessor. that doesn't apply to clinton. >> mich
of it is michele obama. the smallest component is barack obama himself and his speech. >> there's a big bill factor, is in their? >> besides michelle obama at the convention, i thought clinton was too self-indulgent, but it turned out to be like one of his state of the union addresses where the germans on that people like is when the discussion. i thought obama was flat. apparently it doesn't matter. we need to wait a week and a half to get a true sense. >> once said that we do know about his is ohio. obama, mitt romney, 50%, 40% to mitt romney. is this only logical, a state that is highly unionized. >> especially the kids come and i said this rich or poor, that the romney campaign has yet to articulate to employee working people. if the romney campaign had relied on what has been on your pages and not on wall street journal editorial pages,. >> but the 50-point plan that everybody discounted and thorough way. it was too complicated for the journalists out there. does he have it right? >> he has welded onto a five-point plan. but i think it turns out that he didn't spend enough time out of conventi
was good. michelle obama's speech was good. markell rubio's speech -- marco rubio's speech last week was good. going back and forth, trying to decide which way i will leave. i think it will come down to -- you can have a talking point and you can have these things you're going to do and say you are going to do all you want. it will come down to leadership. the bottom line for me as that barack obama had the control congress his first two years, he got nothing but his own way to do what he wanted to do. i am sorry. he rammed everything three. he did it in a matter of fact way and lost respect of his fellow constituents. the last two years with the republicans are getting a bad rep, beating not want to work with someone like that. >> levy dumping in -- let me jump in on that. let's go back to the floor. >> you probably could get a greater distance -- and that it greater distance between guam of florida. we begin with the mayor of riviera speech, florida. your thoughts? >> with the speech president clinton and left side of michelle, we are going to vote for president obama. how can you
that will be the big story in they could end up with a pretty strong convention politically. michele obama was effective last night. bill clinton could be affected tonight. president obama is a good speaker. they will push this narrative. for the worst thing you can do is go back to the battle days. romney is just bush except he is even less sensitive to the middle class and more out of touch. thomas for the republicans did as much as they could to block than enough time. gerri: one quick question before we wrap this segment. you have probably seen these numbers, favorable impression among women voters. the president's numbers are not as high as they work. 49 percent. mitt romney 37%. what do you make of that? do you think the narrative that money is anti woman is working? i understand it was an anti -- pro abortion rally. sparsely attended down there. and try to figure out what it all means. >> i tell you what, i think this goes back to tampa because the democrats have been trying to make mitt romney into this terrible person, bad. this rich guy who does not care about women. you know wha
